We create software for Advanced Additive Manufacturing.

To empower engineers to unlock next-level performance in 3D printing.


 

Our software lies at the intersection of material science, machine learning and computational geometry.

Benefits

We handle the complexity that's intrinsic to 3D printing.


The
Problem

New technologies are emerging at an exponential pace. This means that new products can be created that were not possible before. Whilst this is a huge opportunity current tools cannot leverage these due to the increased complexity.

Our
Solution

Our AI enabled tools introduces a paradigm shift in how products are conceived. Based on user-defined targets and physics driven optimisation we are able to harness the latest 3D printing capabilities whilst keeping complexity manageable.

Additive Manufacturing will be a key contributor towards a sustainable world, our software is accelerating that.

About us

Working towards a sustainable future


We see a future where engineers are free from constraints with access to tools that handle the complexity of design for manufacture and enhances their intelligence. Ultimately, allowing them to focus on the objectives that really matters.

70% of engineers cited lack of knowledge for not using Additive Manufacturing*, our conviction is that we need smarter tools to better understand risk and harness the full potential of this technology.

F.A.Q.

We're here to help.


Are you looking to improve product performance?
Geometrical optimisation is a widely adopted process, however our software includes material(s) as an extra design variable. This drastically increases the search space and creates significant performance gains.
Do you wish you could further light-weight your components?
Whether through the the use of a custom material or our topology optimisation algorithm, reducing component mass without compromising on performance is core to our systems.
Did you know you could design with multiple-materials?
One of the main drivers for the adoption of Additive Manufacturing is the ability to reduce the number of components in an assembly. By considering multiple materials in the same component we're able to further augment this capability.
Do you wish you could automate the validation process?
In most widely available tools, configuring and running simulations can be a tedious process requiring skilled experts. We've condensed this process into user-friendly UI and automated the validation of different materials in parallel. This means we've cut the time spent on validation by 90%.
Can I use my own material database?
Our software was built from the ground up with this modularity, customers can directly import their database as a CSV file.
What simulation types do you have available?
We're rapidly expanding our capabilities and we currently support linear elasticity, heat conduction, modal analysis and fatigue analysis.
What input files do you support?
We currently support STP, STL 3MF, and MSH. Get in touch if you have other requirements.
What exports do you support?

Formflow exports 3MF, STL, PNG and full report containing all the data of your simulation.

Fireflow exports all files supported by Rhino and Gcode directly from our plugin.
